Goalkeeper João Paulo, right-back Madson and midfielder Sandry are out of Santos’ match against LDU (EQU), this Tuesday (24th), in Quito, for the Libertadores round of 16. Last Wednesday (18), the athletes, who returned from the ten days of isolation due to infection with the new coronavirus, tested the disease negatively. However, in the exam carried out on Friday (20), they were again diagnosed with the virus.

The second diagnosis indicates that the players have scars from the disease, and not that they remain contaminated. However, the result was enough that, within the disease prevention protocol adopted by Conmebol, Santos fans cannot operate in Ecuador. The country prevents people in the condition they are in from entering its territory.

As for the Brazilian Championship, the professionals are still able to play, with the three being listed in the loss to Athletico-PR, this Saturday (21st), for the 22nd round of the Brasileirão, at the Arena da Baixada, in Curitiba. João Paulo was only on the bench, while Madson and Sandry entered the course of the match.

Alvinegro will continue this Sunday (22) in the capital of Paraná, where he will train and then travel to Quito. In addition to the LDU, the altitude of 2,850 meters will be a great challenge for Peixe, which, therefore, preserved some players against the Hurricane, such as Lucas Veríssimo, who was not even related, and Marinho, who only entered 22 minutes into the second half.
